I know many of you were here. Just stumbled on this video myself. First set of Foxboro 89. Looks like 7 or 8 parts.

Hey thanks lobster, hadn’t found those before. Much of my time at shows was spent on the periphery, finding that spot where the music was suitable or adequate enough to still hear while having enough personal space to do my thing. So it is very nice to now see what was happening with the boys on stage, and for me it enhances the listening experience to actually see, for instance, Jerry or Phil move on their fret boards.

I thought all the FoxB Mass shows were good fun - I had a good time at all of 'em. That person passed out b/c it was about a million degrees and they got squashed up front. watch them spray the house all over the crowd the cheers of relief and thanks being there were amazing

If you haven't looked into it you'd be surprised how many shows were filmed and are traded. Some of these guys must have been bringing in giant cameras in the early days of recording.
One of my favorites is a static shot Prov 81 filmed from the top Phil side.

Nice! This was an underappreciated show for me at the time. I forced my poor friends to go to the lot several hours before the gate opened. Man, it was hot. At the time, I felt they jumped off the deep end of the pool too quickly and never recovered. The tape reveals a pretty heavy show, rock solid, particularly the trifecta opener. Seek out the nice, bassy FOB.

Yes indeed lobster, but on Jerry's side.
I have noticed several newly released vids out there, both GD and side projects.

Hey Micah, Looking at all these responses, you might be right to nominate this as a potential Show With Most Forumites. So, well, was it a good one? (The music, I mean.)

The show broke a few rules, but to me really suffered from being in a stadium (TDMD?)(FOTD opening 2nd set)
I thought '90, esp. the 2nd set , was the best of Foxboro.

I only saw one stadium show, and I think of it as my least exciting show, musically. (It was in '91.) I had a great time and was glad to have gone, but it was so crowded -- not just a big crowd, like an auditorium/arena/outdoor music venue, but crowded to the nth degree -- and the band was sooooo far away, barely visible except on monitors. It was like watching a really big PPV simulcast while these muppet versions played live at a distance. Stadiums really had to be difficult to play. A very different kind of energy, even from large arenas, IMO.

Then that must be you at the end of To Lay me down. Camera Guy pulls out for a wide shot and you can see medical staff carrying some poor dude away. Speaking of which my only To Lay me down. Jerry's voice and the fact that the band didn't play the song that much for years shows in the shakiness but since it was my only one and out of the blue in a big stadium I'll take it.

I got a ride with 2 heads that I never met. They ate their sugar cubes when we arrived so little did I know that I was doing the driving back to NJ that night. That was a real bummer but I did enjoy the show.
